Captain Mike is a third-generation charter captain, and he's been fishing for as long as he can remember. He loves fishing in the saltwater lakes out of New Orleans, and enjoy putting people on the fish. "It's in my blood to be a fisherman. My grandfather was also a charter captain. I love to fish – plain and simple. I'm just as excited as my clients when they land a trophy fish."
